The biggest name in stock photography, Getty Images, has made millions of its stock images available to the public and is allowing anyone to embed these photos onto websites, blogs and social media channels for free.
Through Getty's new embed tool, anyone can share imagery from the site for non-commercial use on Web properties. It is important to note that embedded images include photographer attribution and link back to gettyimages.com, where photos can be licensed for commercial use. The embed capability is supported anywhere HTML can be posted, including social networks like Twitter and blogging platforms like WordPress.
"Images are the communication medium of today and imagery has become the world's most spoken language," said Jonathan Klein, co-founder and CEO of Getty Images. "Whether via a blog, website or social media, everyone is a publisher and increasingly visually literate. Innovation and disruption are the foundation of Getty Images, and we are excited to open up our vast and growing image collection for easy, legal sharing in a new way that benefits our content contributors and partners, and advances our core mission to enable a more visually-rich world."
